“Imperfect people can have perfect moments.” ~ Brandy Halladay  It may not have been to the level of the eight-part series “The Last Dance” on Michael Jordan’s career and the 1998 Chicago Bulls, but ESPN’s “Imperfect: The Roy Halladay Story” was something for baseball fans, albeit a bleak depiction of the superb starting pitcher. The E:60 series’ one-hour documentary spent…

Starting on Thursday the Rockies face Josh Johnson, then Roy Halladay in Philadelphia on Friday, and there is a strong possibility that the club will be facing Roy Oswalt on Saturday.All indications are pointing to the fact…...

On Saturday night, Ubaldo Jimenez lost his bid to become the first Colorado Rockie to win the Cy Young award. What is interesting about it is that Jimenez hasn’t pitched since Wednesday, and won’t pitch until Monday when he squares off against Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants. 2,000 miles away, in Miami, Colorado native Roy Halladay pitched the…...
